I've just installed 11.10. I then updated my install.

Now, whenever I move the pointer via the touchpad it jumps around upon release. It is totally unusable and i'm using a mouse which is fine.

I have a Sony Vaio VPCE82Z0E.

Everything else is working perfectly, any help is appreciated.

In dash , search for touchpad, a window opens. Go to touchpad section and try changing acceleration and sensitivity in Pointer speed section - In my case which are default they are zero
